A memo from Deneese Jones, vice president for Academic Affairs, announced on Wednesday that a new policy regarding athlete drug testing will be instituted this fall. Athletes will now be subject to random tests for performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs) as part of a “PED initiative” that Jones, Bob King, director of athletics, and Trinity coaches are in the process of developing. According to National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) guidelines, after one positive test, athletes will lose...

By Kendra Derrig and Kathleen Creedon A PRIMER ON FIESTA Fiesta San Antonio, or just Fiesta, may sound foreign to any student from out of town, but it’s just what it sounds like: a party.

Campus Planning and Sustainability is in the process of transitioning residence hall recycling bins to a ‘dual stream’ recycling program. Instead of separating paper, cardboard, aluminum and plastic, students will be able to recycle aluminum, plastic and glass in one bin. Paper and cardboard will still have to be separated. The program will also introduce glass recycling into residence halls. The change comes due to the inefficiencies of the previous method. Only 12.3 percent of all...

When Hannah Larson turned on her faucet in South Hall to yellow water, she was reminded of plumbing problems last semester that resulted in the temporary relocation of South residents to escape the water and the smell.  “About a week ago, my roommates and I noticed the water from our dorm room faucets had a yellow tint. In addition, our toilets seemed to be having trouble functioning properly.  I’ll spare you the details there,” Larson wrote in...
